2018 Jaguar F-TYPE

With so many different sports cars on the market today, it’s important for drivers to find the one that makes the most driving sense for you. The Jaguar F-TYPE is one of the most powerful cars on the road today, but it’s best to compare this model to others like the Porsche 718 Boxster, BMW M4, and Mercedes-Benz SLC300 to see what we mean. Although each one of these models boasts impressive style and performance, knowing how the F-TYPE compares against these models is important:

  • The F-TYPE standard 3.0L engine gives more power than the standard 2.0L engine on the Porsche, offering 340 hp and 332 lb-ft of torque compared to 300 hp and 280 lb-ft of torque.
  • The F-TYPE offers an EPA-estimated 30 highway and 23 city mpg while the BMW M4 only provides 24 highway and 17 city mpg for guilt-free joyrides.
  • The F-TYPE is available in both convertible and coupe models, while you can only get the Mercedes-Benz SLC in the convertible style.

F-TYPE vs 718 Boxster

The Porsche 718 Boxster is an impressive vehicle, but the Jaguar F-TYPE still offers more of what many of our drivers want:

  • The Jaguar comes with a 3.0L supercharged V6, a 2.0L inline-four, or an available 5.0L supercharged V8 while the Boxster comes with a 2.0L turbocharged four-cylinder or 2.5L turbocharged four-cylinder
  • The Jaguar delivers four-way power driver and passenger seats while the 718 Boxster comes with only two-way power front seats
  • Enjoy audio through a premium 12-speaker Meridian audio system compared to the Porsche with only six speakers


Take charge of your Destin drive with the Jaguar F-TYPE over the BMW M4:

  • Enjoy three engine options on the Jaguar compared to only one 3.0L six-cylinder engine on the BMW
  • Superior fuel economy from the supercharged engine of the F-TYPE means you don’t need to come up with an excuse to go out for a drive and just enjoy your car.

F-TYPE vs Mercedes-Benz SLC 300

Cruising through Fairhope in the Jaguar F-TYPE instead of the Mercedes-Benz SLC 300 will bring you plenty of advantages:

  • Although each model has two seats, you and your passenger will have more room to spread out in the F-TYPE
  • Enjoy 7.3 cubic feet of cargo space compared to only 6.4 cubic feet
  • The Jaguar moves from 0-60 in only 5.1 seconds while it takes the Mercedes-Benz takes 5.8 seconds
